Uruguay National Football Team History
In 1924, Uruguay showed their worth when they travelled to Paris to participate in the Summer Games. The team shocked and ultimately defeated much of the competition, employing a truly different style of football compared to the muscular form of run-and-gun football played by many European teams. The style they employed involved lots of short passes, inventive ball handling and an inventive technicality that has rocketed and turned football into the beautiful sport it is today! The legendary team is also famous for beating Brazil in Brazil in 1950 in a match now known as El Maracanazo, when their victory came as a massive upset, as everyone involved had considered the match between Brazil and Uruguay as a simple formality to Brazil’s Football World Cup victory! The second decade of the 21st century heralded a new golden era for the side, with players like Forlan and Suarez forming a team seen to be the best in decades. Success came immediately with their first Copa America win in 16 years, as this side continues to perform, the question is can they maintain this success?
